The Butterfly Effect - Which File Name is Correct?

I wanted to use MakeMKV on my copy of the blu-ray called The Butterfly Effect. ... But, there was a problem. There are four different versions of the Director's Cut version of The Butterfly Effect. There is only one version of the Theatrical Cut version of The Butterfly Effect. Does anyone know whic...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

d00zah, I have some interesting updates for you. First, I had to give up on trying to get MPC-BE and MadVR to display at 24 frames per second. I entered the resolutions of "1920x1080p24" and "1920x1080p23" but nothing would work. In Settings, Windows 10 would have the Desktop resolution at 1600x900,...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

Hi, d00zah. I have some updates. I was able to download the Shark 007 codecs. I literally have to say I would not have been able to do so if you had not given such good instructions. That one website is nothing but a maze of advertisements. Unfortunately, the Shark 007 and MadVR additions did not ch...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

Thank you, d00zah. This would explain why the movie Event Horizon could be played on MPC-BE in Dolby True HD without any audio dropouts - it uses Dolby TrueHD, but not Dolby Atmos. This would also explain why the movies such as Creed 2, The Nun, and Total Recall from 2012 had audio dropouts - they u...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

d00zah, I just thought I would mention this to you because it seems to have more to do with Dolby TrueHD than it does any one particular player. I turned the 2012 version of Total Recall into a MakeMKV. I tried watching the 2012 version of Total Recall with MPC-BE. Dolby TrueHD 5.1 is the default au...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

d00zah, I was able to get MadVR installed and set up so it appears in MPC-BE. ... However, I'm still having trouble with Shark 007 because of all those advertisements on that page. Any help with Shark 007 would be appreciated.

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

Hi, d00zah. Thank you for the advice. I am trying to download the Shark007 via the link you placed here. ... The problem is, I have no idea how. The entire website for Shark 007 is a group of advertisements - all of them say things such as "Download Here" and "Start Process Here" but they are nothin...

Re: Dolby True HD problems with Creed 2 and The Nun

Hi Grauhaar, Thank you for taking the time to write back and help. ... I should clarify a couple things. 1. When I mentioned that I was only using "two speakers" I was referring to when the 7.1 Dolby True HD was being watched directly on my laptop on the laptop screen. The only two speakers on the l...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

d00zah, I think you are correct that the problem may be with MPC-BE. ... In the past this was difficult to confirm because no other players I have can play MKV files. However, today I downloaded VLC just to see what would happen. VLC "plays" MKV files and they look "choppy," so that is why I didn't ...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

d00zah, it sounds like you know what you are talking about regarding technical things. I have another question for you. I recently ripped Creed 2 using MakeMKV. ... While watching Creed 2 on Blu-ray, the Dolby TrueHD sound was fine. ... And when I listened to the Dolby True HD on the two speakers of...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

Thank you. ... I am not sure what "MadVR" is. ... What will MadVR do to MPC-BE that will change MPC-BE in a way that causes MPC-BE to start outputting video at 24fps? ... The way things are now (apparently without MadVR) the HDMI Out on my laptop always sends a signal that the A/V Receiver displays ...

Dolby True HD problems with Creed 2 and The Nun

Several months ago, I watched The Nun on Blu-ray. The Dolby True HD audio did not have any audio problems while watching the Blu-ray. I ripped the Blu-ray using MakeMKV. Then, while watching the MKV version on my TV with the HDMI Out from the laptop computer, there were several spots where the Dolby...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

Thank you for the suggestions. I did as you recommended and changed the settings you instructed. But, none of those changed the framerate of the HDMI out from MPC-BE to 24fps.

Audio Problems with Bee Gees One Night Only Blu-ray

I own a Blu-ray called the Bee Gees One Night Only. It is a very nice Blu-ray that has the concert of some great songs by the Bee Gees. When I watch the Blu-ray in a Blu-ray player, it says the following formats are available in the "Audio" menu: * LPCM 48hz 7.1 * DTS-MA 96hz 5.1 However, when MakeM...

Is Handbrake not compatible with Passthrough of TrueHD?

I recently converted two movies from Blu-ray to MKV. Those movies were Event Horizon and Batman Returns. Both of those movies use 24-bit Dolby TrueHD. Both of them turned out fine in their MKV format. However, when I used Handbrake, I selected "Auto Passthrough." I thought the audio would be identic...
